Students explore international health care
Eight MSOE students traveled to London to investigate and learn about the United Kingdom’s National Health Service (NHS) in late May 2019. The trip was offered in conjunction with a new nursing/humanities elective course at MSOE that examines worldwide health, history, health care delivery systems and practices. While abroad, they participated in lectures with a London nurse practitioner, toured the Florence Nightingale Museum and participated in medical walks at the Royal College of Physicians-London.
Dr. Victoria Carlson-Oehlers, nursing; Dr. Jeff LaMack ’97, biomedical engineering; and Dr. Bernie Cohen ’71, MSOE Regent, were academic facilitators and guides on the trip. Megan Cohan, biomolecular engineering; Sarah Grossman, biomedical engineering; Katherine Heidingsfelder, biomedical engineering; Shannon Medvecz, electrical engineering; Shelbi Schoenfeld, electrical engineering; Alex Solis, computer engineering; Jennifer Vanden Bosch, nursing; and biomedical engineering alumna Rachael DiGrazia ’17 made the trip.
